August 1st, 2013:
Welcome Erik Diaz on bass and listen to our first recorded jams! We recently started playing at regular open mic nights at Front Street Pub in Massapequa Park, NY hosted every Wednesday by our friend Rob Sloan. We enjoyed jamming on improv and cover songs over the nights and figured if sitting is this much fun lets do it more!
Erik Toby & Frank's Life Off!
Here's a bunch of jams and rehearsals from our soundcloud page. Feel free to download and get them early because we regularly put up new songs and take down the earlier tunes. You can download the song from our new free song page, a collection of works in progress and jams. Most are in mp3s or cd-quality wav files. Save them to see how they progress into finished versions
We have finally cleared up some free time to focus on completing the new album. The new guitar parts gliding over melodies sound good. Next up is some singing. Hoping to have a taste ready soon and the album in the early fall. Check out our facebook page for day-to-day happenings like live videos, new songs, open mic appearances (while finishing the album we will be frequenting the Front St. Pub open mic on Wednesday's in Massapequa Park, NY), or anything else that tickle's our fancy.
Happy Earth Day!! Head over to our special Earth Day page for an acoustic treat: download Frank solo on Earth Day 4/22/10 in New York. Download the whole show!
Seriously can't wait to finish the new songs! In the meantime check out our live in the studio take of Tell Me True on soundcloud.
Warm wishes to everybody! We will be hunkering down to finish the next album over the next few weeks. Look out for previews and check out our sites for your musical needs. Till then, super perfundo on the early eve of your day!

August 25 Summer 2012 update
Hey everybody! How's it going? We took a little break to hang out in the shade, listen to lots of new music, and get our energy renewed. We have a bunch of songs that we have been crafting and really want you to hear them! Melodies now need to be set to words and feelings and colors we envision reacting to the whole sound of the music will be evoked by guitars. In the meantime we have some tidbits that we cooked up on the side. Maybe one day we'll gather all of them for a main course, something like Aoeria's Jam Stew. Here's one from last Saturday, August 25th that you can have a mp3 of follow this link. Enjoy!
July & August Update
Here's some pictures from the mixing and mastering sessions for Praise to All You Hear. Both can be saved our view in full size, click either or right click and save as.
Here's a picture of the master tape recorder in action mixing & mastering Praise to All You Hear. We also did Waterwheel with it. There aren't many of these around, especially looking and sounding so pretty. We were lucky to have Kim Stallings from Sony Studios take care of it. Thanks Kim!
Here's one from when we mixed Praise to All You Hear. The device you see is a Mu-Tron Bi-Phase from the 70s, used to gently massage the sounds in a swirling array, much like the colors on the screen
And a special giveaway anniversary celebration!
It was two years ago today that Praise to All You Hear came out to play. We would like to say from us to you, thank you for all that you do. May the music rise to meet you, and to thine own self sky blue.
Here's a pic of the album with all the panels that go inside. We have two copies of the album with handwritten song titles and cover, email email@example.com if you'd like one. Thanks for listing to Aoeria!!! Frank
July 13, '12 New Interview
Here's an interview we did with Vents Magazine a few months before the one we posted from ProjectFresh. It has info about the idea of the band, our musicial inspirations, funny hypothetical questions, and a few new pics. Enjoy!
July 2, '12 New Album Update:
The new album is coming along nicely, the sounds will be familiar and new. The mix of the thick guitars, driving drums, stretched bass strings, and intertwining melodies is in full swing. Now the sonics have been a bit expanded, there are new instruments never used on aoeria songs before. Percussion like shakers and tambourines sprinkle the rhythms, organs swirl between the speakers, and acoustic guitars mesh with fuzz guitars in a tight weave. Can't wait to share the sounds with everyone.
We added Hi-def Praise to All You Hear and Waterwheel at Bandcamp!
(24bit and 48/96khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio pictures and more)
Bandcamp, a great site that helps small bands like us put up cool stuff as direct as possible from us to you. Standard-definition CDs Wavs and Mp3s are 16 bit 44.1khz (like classic video games) but our Hi-Def Wav, Mp3, & Dvd are 24bit 96khz (Waterwheel is 24/48), like most Blu-Rays. Download Shuttle or Wonder for free to see how you like it.
The hi-def files are available in many formats; we recommend Flacs to make uncompressed Wav files which are right off the master reel (yep, we use tape), read bandcamp's instructions. They also offer higher quality mp3s, but check compatibility for portable use, you may want our standard-def version with CD format wavs and ipod friendly mp3s. Happy listening! -Frank
Praise to All You Hear (24bit 96khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio & artwork during songs)
Waterwheel (24bit 48khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio pictures, artwork during songs & bonus)
June '12, new interview!
Read Aoeria's interview with ProjectFresh, the first I've done about the band!
Also check out our facebook page for more pictures. You can see the collection of artifacts I made into the album cover for Waterwheel and my latest guitar, a Gibson Es-339, which I used on the new album for some really soaring parts.

The Reel Story of Aoeria and Waterwheel
Here's the first part of several telling the story. It and covers the early beginnings of the band to the first sessions that would become Waterwheel. Please sit back, tune into some music, and turn the page…
Here's a poem I made recently aoeria.blogspot.com/2012/03/sunday-morningsunday-morning-collecting.html
1. Dreams Fall Away
2. The Abyss
3. Tell Me True
5. Broken Promises
6. Snow Drift
8. The Grid
11. All for You
Aoeria's second album, Praise to All You Hear is out now on mp3 and CD with bonus DVD with high definition mixes on Amazon and CDBaby. Each Cd also includes a postcard-size prints artwork, pictures are selected randomly and available until supply runs out (about 50). Everything about the album is made 100% by the band in our own studio/space, from writing & recording, to designing and pressing the CDs, DVDs and prints, so you can know quality and trueness is what we care about.
This album has been a real labor of love. We went over everything until it was just how we wanted and we are happy to share it you in higher quality sound then we've ever had before. The DVD has 24bit 96khz and 48khz streams so you can hear the extra range of tone that's closer to what it sounded like in the room when we played it. That's what Aoeria goes for, to make sounds that are descriptive and so vivid you can touch them. Most of the sounds are recorded live, with a few spacial effects added in to bring the sound we hear, which is without limits, for you to hear. The CD/DVD as features Frank's photography and the DVD has a slides arranged to the songs.
News: October 16th, 2011
Hey everyone! Frank from Aoeria here, I'm the songwriter, singer, guitarist and Toby Bruzik is our drummer. I'd like to personally thank you from checking Aoeria out, it's incredible to share original music directly with people who care, so thank you for being a part of this! I am recording new songs which I can't wait to play for you. We are also looking for a bassist, so if you play or know anyone and are interested email us at firstname.lastname@example.org I've added the photo montage videos from Praise to All You Hear's DVD to youtube which you can watch on our channel at youtube.com/aoeria. Also the full version of Waterwheel is on Youtube now (*though take it as a impression of the real thing, nothing compares to the sound and look of the real cd/dvd- please read our note below)
a note on Aoeria's creations: You'll never find a upc directly on aoeria's album artwork, or copyright information, because it is not part of the work and experience being presented. a painter doesn't say every minute detail about his work right on it, only the essentials that we would like to have to share the expression we are trying to create. I like to read some details about what I'm listening to, mainly who is playing and maybe where it was made, who was involved, or some of the inspirations. The rest is up to the music. Our videos are an extensions of the artwork created for the album. The music is not contained only on a cd or mp3, it exists as a work on many formats, between the formats, because if had another medium of expression there would be even more to see and hear. For now dvds are the best option we have for presented our songs and images cohesively, so we recommend this for the purest experience to what we created. Thank you for listening to aoeria and enjoy! ~Frank

Here's some additional info about the album and the band
Aoeria (A-or-ee-uh) is an independent rock band from the Long Island/New York City area that creates songs over a wide range of sounds a styles, from acoustic strums to groovy riffs. Our newest member is Erik Diaz on bass, or thunderfingers as we like to call him, Toby Bruzik drums and rocks (Toby is a rock artist is the literal sense of the word), and Frank Giliberti sings, plays guitar, writes songs, and is the honorary driver/roadie. A new album is in the works while Aoeria's 2nd album, Praise to All You Hear is now making waves. The first album Waterwheel has gathered fans worldwide on internet radio, video sites, and social networking with original sounds and bandmade videos with Frank's photography. Each member has been playing in local groups for more than 13 years and have joined up to put their collective experience together. Although it is difficult to pinpoint a specific sound of Aoeria, we can tell you the the sound is a unique style with subtle and intense guitar sounds, introspective and observational lyrics with intricate and simple melodies, all meshed with rhythmic dances and meditations. The band is completely independent: from the music, recording, and pictures, to pressing and designing CDs and DVDs and making websites and videos. Straight from the band to you. Thanks for tuning in!.
